Keep Your Resume Simple
When it comes to the format and fonts on your resume, less is more. As recruiters we can look at hundreds of resumes a day. If you use funky fonts and strange formats it can draw attention away from your skills and experience. Another reason to keep it simple is to avoid the format translating wrong and having your resume turn into a jumbled mess when it gets to the other end.
The exception to this rule is if you are applying for a creative or arty role, if so, feel free to use your creative talents to create a fun and relevant resume, but be sure to send it in PDF format to avoid it translating wrong. When it comes to office support roles, your best bet is to keep it simple.
